Dimensioning is the process of measuring the products’ length, width, and height. It is important for sustainable shipping because it captures accurate product attributes which optimize the use of packaging material to reduce waste and emissions.
When your products are properly dimensioned, it allows you to make the right-size package for your products, avoiding excess material and filler that increases your shipping costs. By using eco-friendly packaging options, like a Packsize solution, you can further reduce your environmental impact and appeal to eco-conscious customers.
Product dimensioning helps you plan your inventory and warehouse management more efficiently, reducing the need for multiple storage locations or frequent transfers. You can also use product dimensioning to right-size your warehouse by scanning and storing product dimensions during your inbound processes and then strategically storing them to maximize racking space. The dimensional data captured anywhere in your warehouse can be used when it comes time to package and ship those items to your customers.
PackNet Cloud Dim is an online dimensioning solution that uses advanced web and storage concepts to ensure that your inventory of SKU data is properly represented. The Packsize dimensioning software enables you to easily update the custom fields and properties of your inventory to enhance the data in your Warehouse Management System (or WMS).
Most WMS systems are difficult, and expensive, to update. PackNet Cloud Dim allows you to change the dimensions of your product data on the fly. When your vendor changes the shape of your product inventory, PackNet Cloud Dim enables flows for seamless management of these changes.
Simply remove the newly dimensioned product from an existing packaging flow, acquire the new dimensions with a dimensioning hardware (like the Packsize Scan2Pack) and then re-insert the product into your existing process. PackNet Cloud Dim pays for itself after only a few product changes.
